The Federal Road Safety Corps, FRSC, will include motorcycles and tricycles in vehicle registration to ensure proper documentation, the Corps Marshal, Boboye Oyeyemi, has said.

Mr Oyeyemi made the plan known at the 1stQuarter 2019 National Vehicle Identification System, NVIS, Desk Officers Workshop held in Abuja on Monday.

The corps marshal, who was represented by Assistant Corps Marshal, Motor Vehicle Administration, Jonas Agu, said henceforth, desk officers must capture motorcycles and tricycles in the agency’s database.

“These stakeholders include the State Boards of Internal Revenue and Vehicle Inspection Officers who form our partners in the tripartite arrangement in order to enable us tackle the challenges of vehicle theft.”

Mr Oyeyemi said that FRSC needed the data generated to improve the mode of the patrol operation, especially with the commencement of the Flying Ticket initiative.

He also urged the officers to ensure that the report of recovered stolen vehicles was constantly updated to keep up with developments in the system.

“You must not cover any discovered or suspected stolen vehicles as that is against the Corps’ ethical standard and values.

“We must work hard and collectively to give the nation a safer, secure and peaceful motoring environment that is worthy of emulation by other nations.”

Mr Oyeyemi called the personnel to do all within their powers to ensure that all vehicles operating in the country were properly registered and the details uploaded to the NVIS.

“The discrepancy is glaring, bearing in mind that we produce and register more than this number in any given year.”

Oyeyemi said that he would not hesitate to sanction those officers who were trying to draw the Corps back through acts that were inimical to high productivity, diligence and expected efficiency in the system.
